Weapon Respawn: All maps are to use their respective weapon respawn times, which you can see above in the map pool section. (use /cv wr <value> to set it in-game.)

Map Selection for Best-of-Three matches: A player must call heads or tails, then flip a coin (/cv random 2). Loser picks the first map to be played and the winner picks the second map. Loser then drops a map, winner drops a map, loser drops another map and finally winner drops one more map. The remaining map will be played as the tiebreaker, if needed. 

In simpler terms, the map selection process will be as follows: +pick(loser), +pick(winner), -drop(loser), -drop(winner), -drop(loser), -drop(winner).

Map Selection for Grand Finals: The player coming from the Upper Bracket receives a 1-map advantage, and the player coming from the Losers Bracket will get to pick the first map. After that, the losing player of each map gets to decide the next one.

Server Selection: Players may play on any server they both agree on. If problems arise and a server cannot be agreed on, contact me on Discord and we'll find a way.

Match Protocol: Player must begin playing their match-up within ten (10) minutes of it being assigned. After the match is completed, both players are required to submit their end-of-game screenshot results to an admin (of all the maps played). Any discrepancies in reported scores will be investigated further. 

Match Details: Players must take an end of game screenshot, and a complete demos of all their games. Players must use /cg_autoaction 7  to have a demo, and screenshot be automatically recorded by the game. Players must be able to provide demos of their games upon request.

Nick: Your nick on sign-up list should be the one you use on Discord, and in-game. No fakenicks allowed!
Behaviour: Be nice to one another. Excessively flaming other players, spectators, casters, admins and/or referees will lead to disqualification.

Cheating: Any, and all forms of cheating, or assistance will lead to disqualification.
